OZ SEEBASE 2020 – A New Depth-to-Basement Stitch from
Geognostics Australia P/L has just released new images of OZ SEEBASE® 2020 and New Zealand ECS SEEBASE® 2013 through GPinfo. The new releases are regional, depth-to-basement models that are based on updates to Frogtech Geoscience’s OZ SEEBASE® (2005), OZ Proterozoic SEEBASE® (2006) and New Zealand ECS SEEBASE® technical studies.
The OZ SEEBASE® 2020 update incorporates separate studies (see below) funded by the Department of Mines, Industry, Regulation, and Safety (DMIRS), Western Australia, as part of the Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS), the Northern Territory Government’s CORE (Creating Opportunities for Resource Exploration) initiative through the Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS), and the Queensland Government through the Geological Survey of Queensland (GSQ), Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.
Collectively, the updated studies focused on improving the resolution of the 2005/2006 OZ SEEBASE including an improved identification and mapping of major structures, depth-to-basement, basement faults, structural architecture, basement composition, and basement heat flow.
The SEEBASE study updates of the Canning Basin, greater McArthur Basin, North West Queensland, and the Adavale Basin are available on-line through Western Australia (DMIRS), Queensland (GSQ), Northern Territory (NTGS) and New Zealand (NZ Petroleum and Minerals) government agencies as pre-competitive datasets for petroleum and minerals explorers. Individual studies are covered by Creative Commons licensing.
